Hulu Plus Lands on Android Market for Select Devices Including the DROIDX and 2

Talk about a big night for Android – first we had Motorola bootloader chatter and then Hulu just did the unthinkable and released their Plus service to a select few devices including the DROIDX, DROID2, HTC Inspire 4G, Atrix 4G, Nexus S and Nexus One.  Again, this is for Plus users who are already subscribed to the $7.99 monthly plan and not just for anyone that’s looking to get their Hulu on.

*Note – Looks like it won’t work if your device is running CM7.  Stock DX and Nexus S run just fine.

If your device is not supported and wanted to give it a try though, you can download the .apk file here.

Cheers 0mie!

    Works fine on my Droid Incredible running CM7. Smooth as silk.

    working on my incredible running cm7

  • Okay, here’s my take… 

    I installed this in my Droid 2, and it works like a charm.   Beautiful picture, clear sound… Looks and sounds good.  After watching about half an episode of American Dad, I picked up the Droid and the battery was so hot, I thought someone could light a cigarette off it.

    Now, using the link that Droid-Life provided to the APK file, I installed it on my Xoom, but when I ran the app I got the message:

    DEVICE NOT SUPPORTED:   We’re sorry, but video playback on this device is not currently supported.  We are working hard to add support for it on Hulu Plus.  Please check back soon.  in the meantime, you can browse the app, log in, and even manage your queues and subscriptions.

    Well, so much for watching my queue on a normal-sized screen.   I’d even be happy to see it on my 7″ Samsung Galaxy Tab.   We’ll see where it goes from here.   I wonder if the issue is technical or legal (rights)

    Myself, I ditched Cable about 18 months ago, and watch my small handful of shows on Hulu, at home using an Apple MAC Mini hooked up to my 32″ LCD tv (which used to have my Tivo hooked up with Cable TV)  —  It is SO worth not having to pay all that money for 500 channels of shows I never watched.   Now, if I can get this on my Xoom, that will be sweet.

    Why can’t the netflix app be this attractive and fast?

    If I have to choose between CM and Hulu Plus I’ll take CM.. It’s most likely the bastardized Hulu plus that is currently on the PS3 and 360.  I say bastardized because you get more content on a laptop then you get on a deveice.  Hulu claims it’s a restriction put in place by thier content providers but at a recent Anime convention I talked to a Funamation rep that indicated that they don’t care what device you view their content on as long as you’re paying for the service and yet if you try to pull up something like One Piece on a Hulu plus “app” instead of going to hulu.com on a computer you are greeted with “your device is not supported”  7 bucks a month for a castrated service.. I think not

      Hmm, that sounds like Sirius Satellite radio…I pay for a monthly service, but cannot listen to it on another device except in my car! I’m gonna call em out…if I can’t get it hooked up to my truck or at least a break in price, I’m gonna maybe drop it.

    I would assume it does, but has anyone tried this with the HDMI output on the DX?
